It is in wonderful working and aesthetic condition, keeps excellent time and gongs beautifully the number of hours on the hour & once on the half hour. History Richard and Company are recorded in Allix, Charles and Bonnert 'CARRIAGE CLOCKS Their history and development' as being the London branch of the French firm Richard et Cie (founded in Paris in 1848) which was set up in 1857. By 1867 the branch was located at 24 Cannon Street and signed clocks in English. Richard et Co were prolific makers of High Quality carriage clocks as well as other types of decorative mantel clocks. According to Loomes the business lasted until 1881. Dial & Hands The enamel dial is clean and free from any damage, with no cracks, hairline cracks or loss of enamel. The large black Roman numerals and 5 minute outer markers are in excellent, original condition and show no loss. The lower part of the dial is signed by the retailers 'Allen & Daws Norwich'. The delicate minute and hour hands are present and in excellent condition. Case & Glass Panels The case is made of high quality, heavy brass and is of the classic Corniche style. It is in excellent and presentable condition with only a few light surface blemishes. The door closes perfectly giving a strong indication of the case’s originality, quality, care and lack of trauma. The inner base to the case, the inside of the door and the underside of the handle are stamped with the number '90'. To the outer underside of the base it is stamped with the serial number '59867' With bevelled glass panels to all sides & a large rectangular bevelled glass to top. All the glass panels are in excellent condition and free from any significant damage. Movement The clock strikes once on the half-hour and the number of hours on the hour. Strikes are made on a polished steel coiled gong which is screwed to the gong block on the clock’s back-plate. The movement is in clean, working condition with no faults or replacements. The movement is stamped to the back plate showing: 'R & Co' 'Paris' Both within an oval circle. When examined closely under a bright light there are two very small and light scratches visible to the glass. One to the lower part of the left side panel and one to the lower part of the front panel, both measuring roughly 2mm, again these are only visible when a bright light is shone directly at the specific areas. There is some very light chipping to the very top of the front glass panel visible when the clock is viewed up side down and a bright light is shone directly at the specific area. There is a very small chip to the bottom right corner of the rear door panel. These specifics have been mentioned only to show the wonderfully high condition of this clock and in no way detract from the clocks aethetical appearance. Clock is complete wih key.
